Policies and Procedures

Scheduling Guidelines

We offer one hour or half-hour appointments. You can call ahead (suggested) or walk-in but reservations are recommended. Students are limited to two appointments (breaks between appointments required) per day.

Proofreading Papers

The Academic Center does not provide a proofreading service. The aim of the Center is for tutors to teach students, not simply make corrections. Tutors will not correct every basic error, but they will teach students how to edit by themselves. While tutors will help students to generate, synthesize and express their ideas, tutors may not be able to assist with specific subject knowledge within each paper.

Food and Drink

No food allowed. Drinks are permitted away from computers.

Cellular Phones

Turn them off during appointments. Use a quiet setting and take calls in the hallway at other times.

Computer and Printer Use

Printing is permitted on a limited basis.  Long articles and papers cannot be printed in the center.  Computer labs are available throughout the campus.
